The 1 st of September will enter into the history of our country as one of the most terrible, tragic days.
On the 1 st of September, at 9 am, a group of combatants burst into the School 1 of the North Osetian town Beslan. Terrorists captured the schools building where they kept more than a thousand hostages. Among the hostages there were children of different ages.

The combats put captured children into the windows to prevent the storm. The terrorists refused categorically to exchange some schoolchildren-hostages for two high- ranking republican officials. At 4 pm the combatants began to threaten to shoot the hostages for each killed or wounded bandit.
This terroristic act is unprecedented on its cruelty. During three days the terrorists cynically, cold-bloodedly treated and killed not only grown ups but the children, too, using them as living shield, opening with their help windows and doors. They didnt give water and food to the children.
At the moment of evacuation of the perished soldiers the combatants blew explosive devices which they had set beforehand. Some parts of the school roof fell down because of explosions.
Part of the children broke away when an explosion blew, but, unfortunately, most of them were shot into their backs by the terrorists.
Its awfully to imagine those horror and fear that the hostages felt.
Federal special subunits and local inhabitants had taken to defending children and began actions against the terrorists. Most of the combatants were killed. The fight which had been lasting for several hours had stopped only on the 3 rd of September by
The grief of mothers and fathers who lost their children forever is endless and beyond measure. Some of the children came to school for the first time.
We cant say that terrorists are normal people. They conceal themselves with religion without knowing its commandments. Every world religion propagate human values, good will, tolerance, kindness, morality.
Terrorists are zombie blackguards, who are strangers to all mankind.
We morn over the lost. There were 335 people, 156 children among them.
Terrorists declared war on the whole mankind. Russian people suffer from it most. Thats why, lets say No! to terrorism. Lets be watchful, careful, wise, conscious. Lets not be indifferent to anybodys grief, it cannot be strange.
В сентябрьский день - день мира, знаний Трагедия произошла в Беслане. В заложники попала тысяча людей, Где среди взрослых - большинство детей. Народ бандиты в школу затолкали. Ни пить, ни есть им не давали, Жестоко мучили людей, Где среди взрослых - большинство детей. А после - взрыв, и штурм начался. Кто мог, тот сам из школы выбирался. Погибли сотни там людей, Где среди взрослых - большинство детей. А террористы в спины им стреляли И злой усмешки не скрывали. Здесь стон стоял, и плач, и крик людей, Где среди взрослых - большинство детей. Сейчас в Беслане больше не стреляют, Трагедию весь мир переживает. Похоронили близких и родных людей, Где среди мертвых - большинство детей...
